Re: libvirt 7.2.0 domainbackup

Got a little bit further. "virsh backup-begin jitsi jitsi-backup.xml" works and I have a backup file now. VM was running all the time. Question. Is it save to use this function this way? Currently I do:

virsh snapshot-create-as --domain jitsi weekly --diskspec vda,file=/var/lib/libvirt/jitsi/jitsi_weekly.qcow2-$(date +%Y-%m-%d) --disk-only --atomic --no-metadata

ncftpput -V -F -d ...

virsh blockcommit jitsi vda --active --verbose --pivot

So while the backup is being written there is no write operation happening to the file.

Any thoughts?

cheers, t.

Hello one and all.

Just wanted to check out the new feature domainbackup but having
trouble to configure it. I thought I just have to put

    <disk name='vda' type='file'>
      <target file='/var/lib/libvirt/jitsi'/>
      <driver type='raw'/>

at the top level of my domain xml file but that does not seem to work. I get:

error: XML document failed to validate against schema: Unable to
validate doc against /usr/share/libvirt/schemas/domain.rng
Element domain has extra content: domainbackup

Can someone please push me in the right direction?

cheers, t.
